Together we have the power to make a difference. Your generosity has made a lasting difference to our local community in literacy, education, health and human services, the environment and arts and culture.

Last October, Sonoma County was one of several counties in the North Coast that was impacted by the North Coast wildfires. As we carry on and rise from these historic events, together with your help we can continue the work we are doing to revive our local communities.

Fund the Future

Fund the Future ensures that underserved students throughout Sonoma County have the literacy skills they need to succeed in school and life. Funding supports nonprofit organizations and school districts offering programming focused on increasing third grade literacy rates, one of Sonoma County’s most pressing issues.

Third grade reading proficiency is one of the first key markers in a child’s academic success. Until the end of third grade, children learn to read; when they enter the fourth grade, children read to learn.
